Like the Peepal tree which takes root and dismantles existing structures, we subvert the cultural status-quo to foster compassion and good work.

We are humans helping animals.

About us

Who we are

We are a group of people with one goal; doing good work. It's our understanding that physical pain is objectively bad. So for us, helping alleviate physical pain is an objective good, especially for those who can't help themselves.

Peepal Farm is stray animal rescue, a no-till organic farm, a vegan farmstay, and a small-scale social enterprise. It is our home that we've built in small village near Dharamsala, Hiamchal Pradesh. It has space for injured stray animals to recover, for people who want to do good work, and for us to be able to organically farm, while reducing our harm.

Instead of putting in a swimming pool, we built a cow shed. Instead of media room, we have a clinic. Instead of having master bedrooms, we made rooms for those who want to come here and experience a simple, sustainable and purposeful life.

Philosophy

We believe that every action for survival has a suffering footprint, especially any act of consumption. So, we believe in mindful consumption, and making our survival purposeful by doing good work, which for us is reducing physical pain.

Vision

To reduce animal suffering, and nudge people away from the behaviors that cause it.

Strategy

Ultimately, the yardstick for gauging our impact is number of animals helped. After working in Auroville, and Delhi we'd realized that scaling infrastructure is not the optimum way to increase that impact. So, instead we came up with the startegy of doing work in a way where we can involve and inspire and increase awareness by story telling.

Current Mission

A space for stray animals to heal & be heard, and for people who want to be part of that change.
